Alaska - Flag Facts
Alaska's state flag was adopted for official state use in 1959 and was designed in 1926 by a 13-year-old, 7th grade boy named Bennie Benson. The blue field represents the sky, the sea, the mountain lakes, and Alaska’s wildflowers. Emblazoned on the flag are eight gold stars: seven from Ursa Major (the Big Dipper or Great Bear constellation), used as a symbol of strength; and the eighth star is Polaris (the North Star), which symbolizes Alaska as the northernmost state and “the ever constant star for the mariner, the explorer, hunter, trapper, prospector, woodsman, and the surveyor..” (quote from legislation).
“Alaska’s Flag” is the Alaskan state song, officially adopted in 1955.
Eight stars of gold on a field of blue,
Alaska's flag, may it mean to you,
The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes and the flowers nearby,
The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams,
The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The "Bear," the "Dipper," and shining high,
The great North Star with its steady light,
O'er land and sea a beacon bright,
Alaska's flag to Alaskans dear,
The simple flag of a last frontier.
